Moonbattery: Newt Gingrich: Republicans Should Work With Pelosi
Scozzafava was the last straw for me. Stop being a RINO and just join the Dems.
Now that Republicans are making a stunning comeback by riding a wave of public revulsion against the Democrats’ statist agenda, it’s the perfect time to toss principles overboard and revert to the Democrat-Lite Party that disgraced itself by massively expanding the government under Bush. At least, that’s what Newt Gingrich seems to think:
Gingrich sees the Massachusetts [Miracle] as a boost for his party, but also as a renunciation of go-it-alone by either party, and thinks Republicans would be "clever" to pass a series of relatively non-controversial measures with "huge bipartisan majorities."
That said, he thinks many Republicans disdain Pelosi so much they simply won’t go along with anything with the speaker’s name on it, even if it serves the party’s larger interests.
"If you are a House member in the [GOP] caucus, I suspect we are about to have a huge argument. We could get clever and work with her… And I think people should work with her… But at that point it becomes a huge problem because nobody trusts her, they distrust her ideology and distrust her because she has run over them so hard…"
